Erskineville Station Upgrade


Project overview

The NSW Government is improving accessibility at Erskineville Station.

The station upgrade is being delivered as part of the Transport Access Program, a NSW Government initiative to provide a better experience for public transport customers by delivering accessible, modern, secure and integrated transport infrastructure across the state. The Erskineville Station upgrade will provide a station that is accessible to people with a disability, limited mobility, parents/carers with prams and customers with luggage.

Key benefits

  • A new pedestrian crossing and footbridge at Bridge Street, with lift and stairs connecting the new footbridge with station platforms
  • A new lift from the existing concourse to Platform 1
  • New facilities, including family accessible, and male and female ambulant toilets, and accessible water fountain, bicycle hoops, and canopies at station platforms to provide better weather protection
  • A new accessible parking space and kiss and ride spaces on Bridge Street 
  • Improvements to CCTV, lighting and wayfinding signage, and upgrades to pedestrian pathways throughout the station precinct


The project is expected to be completed in 2023*.
